Classic Album Sundays
Location: London, United Kingdom
Classic Album Sundays is the world’s most popular album listening experience with 20 satellites in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia. We allow the listener to hear music contextually, communally, uninterrupted, and in great sonic detail. At our worldwide listening sessions, music fans are able to immerse themselves into an album that has helped shape our culture and in some cases, our lives.
We relay the artist and album’s unique story and provide a musical context that gives the listening experience deeper meaning. We share the experience of hearing the album in its entirety, on vinyl, and on a world-class audiophile hi-fi so that fans can experience the music as close as possible to the artist’s original intention. Classic Album Sundays treats the album (and music in general) with the respect it deserves rather than as a free commodity or aural wallpaper. We remind people what they love about music.
We work with a wide range of collaborators including record labels BMG, Universal Music, Sony Music and Warner Brothers, cultural institutions like The V&A, The British Library, Royal Albert Hall and The ICA, media partners such as Boiler Room, Red Bull Music Academy, The Guardian and The John Peel Archive and artists such as Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason, The The, Tony Visconti, Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker, Eddie Kramer, Nile Rodgers, Yello and many, many more. CAS founder Colleen Murphy also hosts regular shows on BBC 6music and Worldwide FM.
